On November 18th I go in for my first I-131 treatment. Some things that my oncologist and what I've read from other posts on here are different. Like some of you say that you stay on the LID until a couple days after treatment and that you need to be on it for the body scan. I was told that the day that I go into the hospital for treatment I no longer need to stick to the LID and can eat normal again, same with the full body scan I can eat normal before I go in 10 days after treatment for that. I'm just wondering if anyone else has gotten this advice. I'm not sure if it's because I have not gotten on a permanant thyroid replacement because after my surgery I was just put on 25mcg of cytomel so that it gets out of my system quickly. If anyone has any insight I would appreciate it.
